2011 - IN PURSUIT
Directed by DELPHNE TAN & JEREMY TAN
Written by LIM WEI YUN
In Pursuit follows the journey of Siew Yee, an ordinary girl with her own dreams and aspirations. When her fiancee breaks off an arranged engagement, Siew Yee finds herself torn between the opportunity of living her life for herself, and remaining under the rule of her grandparents. Convinced hat a woman's fulfilment is gained by being a good wife and mother, Siew Yee's grandparents are adamant that the wedding should go on. Burdened by expectations, both her own and her grandparents', she begins to realise the possibility of surpassing the limits that she set on herself. A story of tension between change and familiarity, blurred by love in its infinite form, In Pursuit seeks not to reconcile both but to challenge the audience to locate the tension within their own lives.
